After eating a banana and a bowl of cereal, I sat down at my computer and read this study about increased food intake and its effect on weight loss. The research shows that basically people are gaining weight because they are eating more than they used to.
This explains why my weight doesn’t change much even after joggling +1500 miles in a year. Apparently, I just eat too much.
And I probably do. My eating habits are not the greatest. They are not awful, as I stay away from sugared sodas, don’t drink much juice and eat a good portion of fruits and vegetables. However, I tend to eat frequently and have more calories than I should. Marathon joggling training can increase your appetite so that is one explanation. But eating is just a mindless thing that I do. When I get up from my chair, I search the refrigerator for some food. Even if I’m not particularly hungry. It’s just a thing I do. Some day, I’m going to stop that and actually lose a little weight. 192 lbs is right on the edge of overweight for my BMI and while I realize that BMI is not applicable in all specific cases, I’d like to be in the normal range anyway.
Generally, people with lower BMIs live longer. That’s what I’ve got to do.
